Re: DA*16-50 problem

Well, after less than two weeks my 16-50 motor died. Won't focus just buzzes a bit. So I have had enough. I decided to try Pentax again and bought the K7 since they can't be bothered to make a decent focus lens for what is not a cheap lens and given that I still don't think Pentax is going to be around a whole lot longer anyways (I still felt this way when I bought the K7 but figured if I could get the body and then lenses I wanted before they went belly up fine) I decided to send they whole thing back for a refund and stick with my Sony A900.

Good luck to all of you Pentax users and I hope I am wrong about them not being around. I also hope they get the motor problem fixed. If not then they need to give a lifetime warranty on the motors for the people that buy their lenses. Lifetime being theirs not the lenses.
